Alaskan artist Judie Gumm has created these delicate Sandhill Cranes in flight of sterling silver with a red crown atop their heads. Judy writes:
I love to watch the families as they fly into Creamer's field just before the migration heads south. You can always tell the juveniles from the adults especially as they try to land. The heads of these silver cranes are inset with red epoxy resin for just that spark of color that we see in the wild ones.
French wires are also sterling silver.
